great apps from app store
I have an ipad, so it makes sharing apps easier
<3 icloud
I only use lifeproof cases, my phone is indestructible with them. It keeps them in new condition that I'm able to sell my phone when I upgrade for 250-350 bucks.
Great camera

downsides?
Mine has trouble in freezing temps....like if I'm at the barn or out riding in like below 32...if I take it out of my pocket for too long it will shut off. Apparently its a safety feature because its not good for the battery/phone parts to be on in extreme cold/heat.

Like I said, been using them for years. I'm quite worried about the iphone6 coming out, rumors of it being a bit bigger. That will ruin iphones for me. I tried a lot of different phones before the iphone, can't imagine going back to them.
Bigger in thickness or bigger overall dimensions?

Any phone feels relatively small to me, as one of my first "smart phones" was an old PocketPC Windows phone. It was a freaking brick. Looked just like this:

My first smartphone was a brick, that thing could not break, it was the Nokia of the smartphone world.

Just a question, I got an iphone and I'm wondering how to turn of celluar data? Because i dont want it eating up my data when i dont know about it?

Turn off any push notifications in the apps that you download, unless you want them to notify you. I only have notifications from Facebook and my bank.

I honestly never had a problem with my iPhone eating up my data. Had that problem with my Droids (ugh!), but never with my iPhone. I think this is because if you put your iPhone to sleep with an app open, it will automatically close the app after a certain amount of time that the phone hasn't been turned back on.

I love my Iphone 5s, however the first day I had it I dropped it without a case! Luckily, it was fine. It fell on straight concrete and was fine, I think I got really lucky. I have also soaked it before by accident in the rain and it was fine. I wouldn't recommend letting that happen though ahha

Horses aren't my whole life, they make my life whole.

I wound up getting the slim LG flip phone. Fits in any of my pockets quite nicely. Takes good pics altho that's not why I got it, don't need apps. just something to send and receive calls and texts. It was cheap so I bo't it outright and am not tied to a contract.

I have an iphone 5s and before that I had a 4s. I have no complaints about the iphone. I am incredibly clumsy and drop mine pretty constantly, I also used to groom dogs and have dropped it in water/gotten it wet plenty (in a Lifeproof case of course - and by the way, I couldn't recommend it more highly, WAY better than an Otterbox!). The OS is fast and reliable; overall it's a solid phone and great heavy users. Never had either iphone freeze on me.

Before that, I have trashed every phone I've ever had WELL before I was due for an upgrade - my Razr's keyboard fell off within a year, my ENV and ENV2 fell apart a little over a year and the ENV2's inside screen shattered. My first smartphone was an LG Ally and it was nice for a few months but quickly became a piece of crap. SO slow, had to take the battery out of it constantly due to freezing. I managed to stretch its usability to the 2 year upgrade mark but by then I couldn't make phone calls with it.

I probably won't use anything but iphone for the foreseeable future.

I have considered a lifeproof case or an otterbox. It would be great for when im out in the country. Which is better?
